Probably one important event which captures our attention in the beginning of the year is the release of Google first mobile phone, called Nexus One. You remember that next year we’ve analyzed some of the coolest gadgets including iPhone, Motorola Droid, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and so on, but this new phone just made official by Google will be on 2010 newspapers and blogs. These days Google made this rumour official on their website all specifications and features of the phone, including an order page in case you want to buy it (who doesn’t?). We will offer you an update…let’s say a review made with official specs.
The Android phone comes with a 3.7-inches touchscreen display and supports 800 x 480 pixels resolution. Google claims the contrast rate is 100,000:1 and the response rate-1ms. As main features we remember the accelerometer and digital compass.
Phone seems thinner, but a little longer than than iPhone having: 119 x 59.8 x 11.5 mm. It weights 135 grams with the included battery. By the way, the battery has 1400mAH one capable of lasting 10 hours in talk time or 290 hours in standby mode.
On the top side of the phone we have the power/sleep button and 3.5 mm jack, while on the bottom is situated the microUSB port and the mic hole. Volume rocker buttons are on the left s ide of the phone.
Android 2.1(Eclair) is the operating system version and the processor is a Qualcomm QSD 8250 having 1 GHz. Nexus one comes with 512Mb memory(both internal and RAM) and a 4 Gb microSD card, but it supports up to 32Gb in case you want to extend it.
Google phone offers plenty connectivity features: GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and microUSB. Gps is also available through A-Gps receiver.
As Google say on google.com/phone you can buy the phone with $529.99(unlocked version) or you can pay $179.99 for 2-year agreement with T-Mobile.
We’ll see if it worth it!
